The Most Influential Women To Watch In 2022

The Most Influential Women To Watch In 2022 features,

Mindy Rothenberger: Mindy Rothenberger is the President and CEO at Southpoint Financial Services. Her vast experience in the mortgage and financial industry has proven to be a great catalyst for her success.

She entered the mortgage industry 26 years ago and worked her way up from the bottom, becoming the top producer in each job function along the way.

It is rare for an individual to have all the underwriting certifications and qualifications and have the same success as a top producer on the sales side.

Her vast experience and knowledge of the underwriting guidelines gave her an edge when counseling mortgage loan borrowers in the purchase of a home, or the refinance of an existing home.

Gwendolyn Young: I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration with a focus on Information Systems from DeVry University, and a Masters’s Degree in Organizational Leadership from Lewis University.

I’ve been named one of the most influential women in business by the Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the National Association of Women Business Owners – Chicago Chapter and the Women’s Innovation Network.

Zara Zamani: Well, my professional experience is not a whole different story to many more who made it right in their career. It is a lot about focus, hard work, learning to do smart work, and then working smart but hard. I am an engineer turned leader. I started my career in the oil and gas industry as a hardcore field engineer.

My experience in the Oil and gas industry taught me to communicate effectively with a very diverse group of people in terms of profession, skills, education, culture, gender, language, and many more. It also toughened me up since it was a very male dominant industry.

 Jennifer Barnes: I started the Optima office in October of 2018 after my ex-partners did a hostile takeover of my first company. I made the mistake of being in a situation with my first company where I only owned 45% of the organization.

I brought in over 90% of all the revenue and most of the employees. We were the 5th fastest-growing company in San Diego our 4th year in business and things seemed to be going extremely well, until- well- they weren’t.

In year 6, after a couple of years of being in a bad relationship with my partners, they found a way to do a hostile takeover of the company. I walked out with security and had everything taken from me.
